I have to admit--I'm starting to fade on this whole 7 posts in 7 days challenge. Not that I'm out of posts to write, just that it's more posting than I've done in some time. Here are the posts for this week so far:
I've been under the weather this week so it's a good thing I wasn't scheduled to work much. I finally bought a humidifier, but I'm not sure it's really making any difference. I don't feel so bad during the day, but my congestion forces me to sleep with my mouth open so I wake up every hour or so from drying out when I am able to get to sleep. Hopefully I'm past the worst of it though.
Lilly recently started shedding like crazy after being a fairly low-shed dog. We got a Furminator for her this week and it's been really great. They're kind of expensive, but I think it'll be worth it once we use it for a few days and get things under control.
Staying home sick these past few days has given me a good opportunity to finally try out Call the Midwife. I figured it was right up my alley and I was write. I'm on my ninth episode in the past three days. Obviously I've never been a midwife or worked in the 1950s or in London, but there are a lot of universal nurse themes and good wisdom. I also love the nuns and the compline singing in ever episode.
I'll be leaving next week for my second part of Creighton training. Between now and then I have one intro and three follow-ups so plenty to do. I'm praying for no snow storms when I need to travel and to not get stressed out about requirements.
This weekend will be a little busy with me working tomorrow and having an intro in the afternoon, plus having company. Brice's brother is coming in the afternoon and will spend the night. In case you missed the results of our church bake sale from last week, we had a goal of $300 and ended up raising over $1600! We're able to adopt 5 children in Haiti for their education for one year. Amazing!
